Moore County, the smallest county in the state of Tennessee, is a dry county and has been ever since Prohibition. Lynchburg lies at the heart of Moore County and is an old fashioned town, the likes of which you may have thought no longer existed in America. It has a charming town square with a variety of unique shops surrounding the 100 year old courthouse. You won't want to miss local favourites like lunch at Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House and a trip to the Lynchburg Hardware and General Store.
Lynchburg is a little off the beaten path, so if you are visiting it's either your destination or you are lost. And if it’s your destination then odds are you are visiting this tiny little town in a tiny little county for one reason; you’ve come to take the tour of the oldest registered distillery in the United States – Jack Daniels.
The tour of the distillery is a folksy experience - no need to hurry. Just stop and chat awhile. Life moves at a slower pace in Lynchburg.
And as you drive out of town on your way to Chattanooga or Nashville, yes, that fellow who just passed you in his pickup truck waved at you. That's a Lynchburg tradition!
